When a family becomes eligible for Family Assist, enter code F in Item 25.

updated amountsExample 1: An FS REDE application is received for a family of 2 in a Group I county. Item 25 is blank. The Family Assist Standard is $318. The family reports earned income of $810. ACM determines eligibility as follows:

Gross Earned Income $810
Employment Deduction -90
Sub-Total $720
$30 -30
Sub-Total $690
1/3 of the remainder -230
Countable Income $460
Family Assist Standard $318

 The family is eligible for All Kids/FamilyCare Assist and no further action is needed. The family is not eligible for Family Assist. Process the case through ACM.

updated amountsExample 2: A family of 4 in a Group II county reports that their earned income has decreased to $510. Item 25 is blank. ACM determines eligibility as follows:

Gross Earned Income $510
Employment Deduction - 90
Sub-Total $420
$30 -30
Sub-Total $390
1/3 of the remainder -130
Countable Income $260
Family Assist Standard $461

Since the family is eligible for All Kids/FamilyCare Assist, compare countable income to the Family Assist Standard. Since countable income is less than the Family Assist Standard, the family is eligible for Family Assist. Process the case through ACM. Then enter code F in Item 25 through IPACS.
